There are 4 ways one can use essential oils for your animals effectively. Today we will be discussing diffusion.
Diffusing the essential oils in your home helps affect mood, support immune system and can purify the air etc and a water based diffuser is preferred with 2 to 4 drops. We use less as a dog for example has 300 million olfactory receptors compared to humans who have 6 million olfactory receptors
When we diffuse one always makes sure the doors and windows are open and the animals can leave the room. In the case of birds and other small/caged animals, always diffuse in another room unless a specific oil is recommended for a specific ailment by a vet or certified animal aromatherapy specialist.
Another way is to use essential oils aromatically is to allow the dog, cat or horse to self select an oil. Always introduce the oil with the cap on and a distance from their nose. If you feel the oil is to strong for them to smell, you can always dilute 1 to 2 drops in 5 ml Fractionated Coconut oil and let them smell it with the lid on again.
